When it comes to finding inspiration for gifts, it can be difficult especially when you’re struggling with that one person who’s impossible to shop for. However, take some inspiration from some of these generic gifts that will go down well regardless of who receives them.
Nothing beats a garish Pajamas set, whether it’s an all-in-one jumpsuit or the standard vest and shorts. They are the typical present you buy around Christmas, but pajamas are a great alternative gift if you’ve got absolutely no clue of what to buy someone. It’s also a versatile gift because you can buy them to suit all seasons and you can never have enough nightwear anyway!
Giving money can sometimes feel like you’ve put no thought into a gift, so instead, gift vouchers are very popular, and most stores and companies that sell products or services will have gift vouchers available to buy. They can come in the form of gift cards or vouchers, and for those who may live far away from the recipient, e-gifts are also available to send straight to their email on the day of the celebration. Gift vouchers are also a good buy for wedding gifts if the couple hasn’t requested anything specific.
Food & Drink Hampers
We all love food and drink, so if the person in question doesn’t have any specific dietary requirements, then a hamper is certainly a good idea. If you’re getting a hamper though, particularly a food one, you want to make sure that they’re going to be in and they’re not suddenly decided to go on a holiday for the week! It might be best to give them some sort of indication that something is being delivered so at least they can be in to receive it. With alcohol, it’s important to make sure that anyone accepting it is over the legal age as delivery drivers will usually ID check.
For road trips in old cars, singing shower sessions and parties, portable speakers are a great way of injecting some music into the space. They can come in all shapes and sizes, simply by plugging in your phone or even using Bluetooth to link up the device. This a great all-round gift for everyone because music is something that’s enjoyed by the majority. Portable speakers don’t have to be very expensive either so they are great as a stocking filler or a small gift for someone that might be a work colleague or mutual friend that you don’t want to spend too much on.
Generic gifts like this can certainly help in situations where you have no clue on what to get someone. Some other notable mentions for gift ideas are books, CDs and kitchen appliances that are fun like a popcorn maker or smoothie maker. Whatever you get, a gift whether it’s been made by you or brought shows that you care about the person enough to invest your time or money into them and that’s a nice thing to have.
